For auto-detection of X11 library and header locations to work, you (an  
anonymous, generic 'you') must have /usr/X11R6/bin (or equivalent) in  
your PATH and you must have a working 'xmkmf' in that location.  In  
other words: to build Squeak with X11 support your compilation  
environment must be capable of building X11 clients from source.   
(Sounds obvious when put like that, no?)

Otherwise you can bypass X11 auto-detection by running configure  

	mkdir bld
	.../config/configure --x-includes=/usr/X11R6/include  

(assuming the required X11 headers and libraries are installed).

If you get compilation errors after configuring with '--without-x'  
(including OpenGL-related errors on Mac OS X) then let me know, because  
you've found a real bug.


PS: I only saw the above email because of a broken imap server.  Send  
VM build problems to VM-Dev or to the maintainer of the affected VM.
